Sure you can spend a bunch of money and get an ultra small diameter backing that will work just fine. But if you are like us it doesn’t make a ton of sense to spend a bunch on backing when you could be spending that on more gear.
The trip was great. The lodge, the guide, the food, the staff – all wonderful. The fishing was not as great as we hoped although good. Very tough conditions, more physical, and not as many fish as we or the other guests expected. The fish are as big as advertised however.
Belize is a really cool destination that I will surely be back to visit again soon. The lodge is very accommodating to the angler wanting to fish 6 days straight or if you want to do just a few days guided fishing and do your own thing the other days.
We caught so many 10-12lbs in fact that we stopped taking pictures after a day or so. We had tons of doubles and even a few triples. We had a handful of 30 fish days and one day where we caught 40 if we caught one. There isn’t anywhere on the planet that fishes like Strobel Lake.
Golden Dorado had been on my list to catch on a fly rod for many years due to their aggressive nature, one of a kind gold appearance, and fly shredding teeth.
The Argentina fishing trip was fantastic! First time fishing for Golden Dorado and I will definitely go again. Staying on the boat was very cool, great staff, great food and great guides.
This is hardcore streamer fishing. If you like throwing big flies at aggressive fish, this is as good as it gets.
The experience of sight fishing the unbelievable numbers of huge rainbows is beyond compare. I’ll be back!
Fly fishing Argentina is truly spectacular, and we’ve been hard at work finding the most exceptional fishing lodges in this little slice of fly fishing heaven. We understand how fishing conditions change throughout the season and we give you advice based on peak fishing times.
Arkansas is lucky to have some of the most famous fly fishing water in the world. Fly fishing Arkansas Little Red River, White River, Norfork River and the Spring River can produce amazingly beautiful trout year round.
British Columbia offers first class fishing with a ton of value. British Columbia fishing is so good, partly because of it’s 25,000 lakes and 12,000+ miles of coastline. Anglers travel from around the world to fish for salmon, halibut, sturgeon, and steelhead.
In my opinion the best way to experience all that Alaska has to offer is to go with one of the premier fly out lodges. The variety of fishing and what you will experience here in a week is unrivaled. You will be planning your return as soon as your schedule allows. I guarantee it!
Nothing makes me happier than booking a trip for guys and seeing the photos and the excitement and appreciation for what I love. Wild steelhead are an amazing fish that takes some skill and determination to catch.
